How to Plan an Intimate Beach Wedding
If you book the right venue, you can access the beach and set up a tent to host your guests in comfort. Booking a beachfront venue will give you access to a beach ceremony and a venue party.
A beach ceremony is romantic and stylish. A beach is a happy place with a view of the ocean and a light summer breeze while you declare your wedding vows. The barefoot beach option feels like a holiday.
3. How do you prepare for a beach wedding?
Make sure that you have enough time for preparation. Most weddings can take six to twelve months to plan. Plan your wedding budget to know how much money you have available. Your budget will determine your venue choice, menu, entertainment and details.
Decide on a beachfront wedding venue.

- Temperature and humidity. Make sure you have umbrellas to shade your guests.
